Overheard On The Subway

Those days when you forget your head phones and magazine at home and are jammed up against someone else or if you're lucky you snag a seat...the only thing you have left is nothingness and the view of your fellow commuter's beer gut. What you do have are ears, and whether you like it or not, you have to endure random conversation after random conversation. As much as you try and block them out, you are all but pretty much forced to listen...

Actual quotes

"It's my family man, my dad's an asshole and just doesn't give a shit." Ten second silence from his friend. "Family can be a pain in the ass."

"I love the subway." Both girls smiling. "Yeah, me too." (<<< ???)

"Wow, that rat was huge!"

"So where are you working now?" "Over at this new company my friend hooked me up with." "Oh that's good, do you like it?" "Nah, not really."

"Wake me up when we get to the next stop." "I got you baby."

"Y'all gotta scoot in, y'all can't be taking up all that room like that. Yeah honey, I'm talking to you, move on in."

"So where you headed?" "I'm not sure yet, where should I go?"

"Ladies and gentlemen, we are delayed due to train traffic ahead, we will be moving momentarily, we apologize for any inconvenience."

"It's about this mythical creature that attacks a parallel universe and its prisoners escape and explore their unknown surroundings." "Sounds wild." "Yeah, so far I like it, I just have to figure out the rest."

"Once we closed everyone started partying. We drank at the bar and turned up the music. Everyone started hooking up, I don't know who was with who, everyone was wasted. I heard someone hooked up in the walk-in."

"Get me off this thing..."
